Chousa are floats adorned in gold and silver embroidery that act as platforms for taiko drums. With everyone decked out in matching happi coats, the chousa are carried across the town for a carrying contest at otabisho rest stops and square as the sound of the taiko fill the streets. When night falls, chochin lanterns provide light for magical dances. Kaki kurabe is the highlight of the festival.
